comment Does the /dev/null file actually have a fixed size?
I don't think here is a good place for such a discussion., and I don't think this point is actually important for the answer. If you think it's important feel free to edit the answer and remove the thing about the inode.

comment Does the /dev/null file actually have a fixed size?
Just like any other file a device file needs an inode that stores the owner, permissions, major/minor number and other metadata. It depends on the file system how and where this inodes are stored (you can use mknod to create device files anywhere you want). For virtual file systems like /dev/ the inode doesn't occupy disc space but some memory.

comment ~ and ${USER} don't work in .desktop files
You could explicitly use a shell, like sh -c 'java -jar ~/.osbuddy/osbuddy.jar'. But I think using the full path is usually the better solution.
